Newly Appointed British High Commissioner Pays Mayor of Freetown A Courtesy Call

The newly appointed British High Commissioner to Sierra Leone, Simon Mustard, together with the Head and Deputy Head of DfID (SL), Kobi Bentley and Sandy Baldwin, paid a courtesy call to Mayor Aki-Sawyerr earlier today.

They had a lighthearted chat, which spanned various areas; from the Mayor’s priorities over the next three months to an overview of the #TransformFreetown Agenda to the Commissioner being a native of Kingston-Upon-Hull (Freetown’s twin city) to the Mayor being active on social media.


The British High Commissioner was particularly impressed with FCC’s where the list of registered waste service providers in Freetown is available for all residents – a key part of the Council’s efforts to improve sanitation in Freetown.


The British High Commissioner and the Head of DfID expressed keen interest in FCC’s Cleanest Zone Competition, and the initiatives in the Education and Health priority sectors.
